Although on the expensive side, I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you want to treat yourself to some authentic Colombian cuisine. I had the Bistec en Salsa Criolla (€19) and my friend the Bandeja Paisa (€20). It's definitely more than enough food to keep...More

You could easily walk past this place. Lovely service, family owned place. The arepas were wonderful. We had cheese and pork. So good. Almost like being back in Miami but in Europe :)

Better if you book a table in advance since the place is kind of small and normally crowded. Food really good and service was ok. They first ask you about the drinks and the starters and, after that, the big dish. Empandas are quite good...More

We went there for the empanadas but they had ran out of them. The chorizo was good. Quite pricey as well.

In this family run restaurant you will find great Colombian food. Service is friendly and food is authentic. I have visited several times. It is bit pricy but that is what you get in center of Amsterdam.

Awesome food. Very good Colombian empanadas fried yuca and the soup special which had plantains, beef and vegetables was to die for. Very clean and the night we were there great atmosphere with a large family from Cali all speaking Spanish. Awesome would go back...More
